if I crossed a high-quality buff rooster on my dark headed Partridge silkie hens would it help to get rid of the charcoal Gene? Does anyone have any pictures of the above mentioned cross ?

I hope Silkie breeders answer, as I'm not a Silkie breeder.

I can send you to this website which talks about color genetics and allows you to estimate the outcomes:

If you click on the "About Buff" in the lower corner, it talks about how Buff can be dominant over black feathers, but it depends on the kind of Buff genetically.

Hope that gets you started until someone who is more savvy on this particular pairing can help you.
